Demand for lighting equipment slips during 3Q 2013

NEMA’s Lighting Systems Index subsided from a five-year high posted in the previous quarter, decreasing by 1.6% on a quarter-to-quarter (q/q) basis during 2013 Q3. However, demand remains robust compared to a year ago. On a year-over-year basis, lighting equipment shipments improved for the fourth consecutive quarter, increasing by 4.7%. Miniature lamps were the only component of the index in positive territory, while fixtures, emergency lighting, large lamps and ballasts declined quarter-to-quarter.
